Men Star Fan Bingbing May Be Missing

Men Star Fan Bingbing May Be Missing”

Fan, who is known in the West for playing Blink in X-Men: Days of Future Past and appearing in I Am Not Madame Bovary, has been at the centre of swirling rumours involving a flit to the U.S. and being placed "under control" by the Chinese authorities due to her unexplained absence.

Only about half of the 800 or so films made by Chinese studios previous year made it to a cinema and among those 400, fewer than a quarter sold at least 100 million yuan ($14.6 million) in tickets.

Even supposing Fan denied the accusations and Cui in the end walked assist his claims, China's Issue Administration of Taxation presented rapidly after that they had been having a glimpse into the claims of tax evasion appealing celebrities, warding off Fan.

Meanwhile, a watchdog site covering social media censorship in China notes that concerned supporters who wondered online what had happened to Fan have since seen their posts scrubbed.

Several of Fan's employees were also allegedly under police investigation after the allegations of "yin and yang contracts" emerged, where the actress was said to have signed side-by-side public and private agreements that hide her real earnings to avoid paying tax.

Fan has been unusually quiet in recent months ― with no new posts to her normally active personal Weibo account since May ― amid speculation about her whereabouts.

The sudden disappearance of Bingbing Fan from social media and the public eye has led to rumors of her arrest for tax evasion all the way to she fled to Los Angeles to seek asylum.

Concerns have intensified that one of China's most famous actors Fan Bingbing, who has been missing for months, may be in trouble with the authorities after she came last in a ranking of social responsibility among celebrities. In addition to film and television roles, the 36-year old actress has done commercials for high-end companies like Cartier and Mercedes-Benz. The next day, Cui followed up with an equally explosive Weibo post saying Fan had two contracts drawn up, one promising $1.6 million (10 million RMB) in salary and the other contract, the "hidden" one, guaranteeing $7.8 million (50 million RMB), for merely "four days of work". Her studio said the report was "slander", per Channel NewsAsia.

So-called "yin and yang" dual contract arrangements ― with one contract for income declared to tax authorities and another kept secret ― are reportedly used to evade taxes. Fan's boyfriend, Li Chen, also hasn't been seen since Fan disappeared. Fan scored 0 out of 100, according to the report. Fan Bingbing arrives in the last position with the zero mark.

Given the Chinese government's propensity for secrecy, there probably won't be any solid news until the matter is sorted out behind closed doors, and Fan pays up for her rumored tax transgressions and makes a contrite statement to the public.
